Given how little women;s history there is, I though this was important :
Emily Carr Statue
The distinguished artist and writer Emily Carr (1871-1945) was designated a person of national historic significance by the Government of Canada in 1950. A project is now underway to commemorate this remarkable Canadian with a statue in her hometown: Victoria, British Columbia. A larger than life bronze statue will be sculpted by Barbara Patterson, the talented Canadian artist who created Famous Five monuments that now stand on Parliament Hill in Ottawa and in Olympic Square in Calgary. The Empress Hotel has agreed to welcome the statue on the grounds of this famous landmark, at the corner of Belleville and Government streets overlooking the Inner Harbour in downtown Victoria.
To commemorate Emily Carr with a statue, the Parks and Recreation Foundation of Victoria has launched the Emily Carr Statue Fund. More than one quarter of the funds have already been collected, and your donation will ensure that this well-loved Canadian artist is honoured for contribution to Canadian arts and culture.
